About the Show

It’s hard to think of a single African-American violin player to make a mark in popular music, so classically trained South Florida twosome, Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester, who go by the name Black Violin are a welcome revelation for their ability to meld highbrow and pop culture, into a single genre-busting act. The band’s most recent album, Classically Trained, is a good introduction to their ground- breaking blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and even bluegrass music.

Live, they are often accompanied by their crack band, featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal), drummer Beatdown (Jermaine McQueen) and cellist Joe Cello (Joseph Valbrun).

A preshow event, sponsored by The Conservatory of Music, will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby area of Tilson Audtorium. All ticketholders are invited to this free event.
